Tikal means “City of Echoes” and is one of the largest archaeological sites and Maya urban center of pre-Columbian civilizations. Located deep in the jungles of the northern region of Petén in Guatemala, the site abounds with history, wildlife and culture. Your tour begins with a meet and greet at your hotel by one of our local guides, followed by a short transfer from San Ignacio through the riverside towns of San Jose Succotz and Benque Viejo Del Carmen. Upon reaching the border, you will then be transferred into another vehicle where you will be going with an experienced guide from Peten who will introduce you to the history of Guatemala and explaining about the many cultures that have come to call Guatemala, home. Look for the change in scenery as you cross the border, the changes from Belize’s British heritage to Guatemala’s Spanish heritage can be clearly seen in the type of architecture and culture of both countries.
Tikal remains as one of the larger cities of the Maya lowlands, with a long dynasty spanning several centuries. The ample plazas, vast and towering palaces, tombs and stone monuments have made it one of the top sites to visit in the Maya World.
